A 3D Interface for Selecting Household Paint Colors
Abstract:Commercially available tools for searching collections of paint colors are critically examined and a new computer interface for selecting household paint colors is proposed. The new system is organized according to a perceptual color space and uses modeless, constrained, in-place, 3D interaction. Two user studies are performed to evaluate this system and the results are discussed. These studies demonstrate that, with enough training, our system is faster and at least as accurate as current color search tools. The results suggest that the tool could be beneficial to properly trained design professionals. Users also report a favorable impression of our system over the current tools.

CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, and a vibrant interactive papers session. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper presentation.
